Don't look at us, the only dancing I like is in a GO Go bar.

More like you're looking for a human to dismember.

What you call "dancing" here, it is really figure dancing abroad, done by a few professionally, and not an every day event.  In fact, if you were in a party abroad, and started dancing that way, you will probably be laughed at by many not so polite attendants.

 

Dancing is the sensual movements of your body according to the musical notes you hear, nothing abrupt, no sudden movements, no plastic smile plastered on you.  

 

A local friend who claims to know dancing, asked me once to dance a Cha Cha Cha with her.  I got pretty good CD's so I selected one and we started.  Within 10 seconds I stopped dancing, and told her that is not the way to dance Cha Cha.  She claims to have won many competitions, and that she really knows how to dance.  I said, fine with me, but you do not dance Cha Cha at all, you perform a  "boxing or wrestling match" instead.  Then I danced a Cha Cha by myself like it is done everywhere, and she continued to say I had no idea how to dance Cha Cha.  So, I shut my mouth and "allowed" her to gain face with those friends present.  But there were foreigners present too, and they made comments like she was wrong and I was right.  And the evening turned into a fiasco.

 

So, it may be hard for you to find a foreigner to dance with if you are also into figure dancing.  If Carlos Gardell saw a Chinese dancing a tango, he would have quit singing.

wow, you don't pull any punches guys !!! Interesting........lol

Primo: I'm also a foreigner

Secondo: I never said that I'm good at dance !

Tertio: agree with you : "Dancing is the sensual movements of your body according to the musical notes you hear, nothing abrupt, no sudden movements, no plastic smile plastered on you".

Well...I just love dancing and looking for a reliable male partner to practice, and share lessons with while having fun.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
